"Was he telling the truth about Anakin wanting Luke to have his lightsaber? That Anakin was killed by Darth Vader? Or that Obi-wan took it upon himself to train Anakin as a Jedi? No, so that makes Obi-wan a big-fat liar. It is common with society that if a person does one thing wrong, the amount of good deeds you do will be completely ignored and Anakin has done more harm than good."....endquote That's what society thinks. Yet its not necessarily true. If one recognizes their error and turn from evil, than thats what's most important. One has to think on a higher level to have a true understanding of this. Anakin makes costly mistakes, yes, but he's also a good person who has the best intentions, yet lacks a true understanding to what love and compassion is. Anakin doesn't truly learn this lesson until he sees Luke which yes, leads to his redeemption. He's an individual who made a horrible mistake and paid a dear price for it. That's the same person who turns from evil late in life and becomes good, again. There's a spiritual significance in all of this. As for Obi Wan, when he was talking about a young Jedi named vader who helped the Empire hunt down the Jedi Knights, and Luke's father who was a great star pilot and a good friend, he was talking about the same person. Anakin was all of those things. Obi Wan just didn't tell him he was talking about the same person until RoTJ. And yes, darth vader did kill Anakin. Looking at it spiritually, Anakin did die when he bowed before Palpatine and renounced the lightside of the force. The good person he was, became imprisoned by the darkside of the force. Everything Anakin swore to destroy, he became, like Obi Wan said later in Rots. So yes, darth vader did kill Anakin Skywalker, from a certain point of view. He killed the ideas Anakin stood for, the same good principles he goes by in TCW. Ironically, it was Luke that made vader believe in those principles again, plus showing him what true compassion is all about. That's what saved Anakin at the end.
